Back in February, Blizzard announced Diablo II: Resurrected for multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch. Since then, there has been very little information about the remaster of this iconic classic.
Now, in a new update – the company has confirmed that the very first technical Alpha for the game (for PC gamers) begins on Friday and runs until April 12. It will give players access to Acts I & II and allow them to choose the Amazon, Barbarian and Sorceress class.
A FAQ on the same page confirms that console players will be included in future game tests:
Question: Why is the technical Alpha PC only? Will console players be able to test Diablo II: Resurrected?
Answer: Diablo II: Resurrected will be released on Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. We will include console players in our future game testing phase.
To make up for this, live streams of Technical Alpha will be on Twitch.tv and YouTube games this weekend.
Frequently asked questions also mention how Technical Alpha is a single player only, note how the final version of the game “will allow offline play”
